REBECCA J. SCHUSTER
E-RYT 200

Rebecca was introduced to yoga by her mother and sister at a neighborhood studio in her native city of New York. Since then she has practiced at a number of different studios in various cities and with a number of instructors. She is a 2010 graduate of Kanyakumari’s Yoga 240-hour Teacher Training program under Sarah Filzen. This program taught her not only the physical intricacies of asana, but also provided her training in energetic anatomy, provided a basic foundation in Pranayama (Yogic breath work), as well as allowed her to learn about yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda. She is continuing her education through YogaOne Studio’s 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training (2016-2017).

What she most loves about yoga is that her practice is ever evolving and deepening. Yoga brings stability and openness to one’s mind and body, as well as a greater understanding and acceptance of one’s self and place in the universe. Rebecca’s classes aim at giving a sense of empowerment and grace to people. She also aims to help people become more aware of their breath and internal movements. The practice of yoga is a lifelong lesson that anyone can learn. She aims to continue learning and to be inspired by those who attend her classes. She currently teaches restorative, yin yoga, and different levels of vinyasa. In all her classes she keeps to a flowing sequence to maintain fluidity and a meditative quality to the atmosphere.
